Every donation helps enable us to continue to support vulnerable children in India. Even the smallest amounts go an incredibly long way in India. There are many different ways you can donate to the work of SLA detailed below.

If you are a UK taxpayer and would be willing to let SLA reclaim Gift Aid on any donation you make, please state this when donating or tick the Gift Aid box on the donation form. The UK government will give Scottish Love in Action 25p for every pound you donate at no cost to you.

Giving through your Self Assessment Tax Return

From September 2004 it has been possible for you to nominate Odyssey to receive tax repayments due to you as donations. You will find Scottish Love in Action and its code number on the list of participating charities on the Inland Revenue website. The code is also given here and is: GAU21GG. This can be entered in the appropriate place in your tax return. The repayment will automatically be made direct to Scottish Love in Action.

Leaving a Legacy

After you have made provision for your loved ones, if you were able to leave a gift to SLA in your Will, it would enable us to continue giving life-changing support to such destitute children for years to come.

Your Gift would help us to ensure that each child is given the education and life-skills needed to develop his or her unique potential, to escape the poverty trap and to lead productive, independent lives. Legacies have helped SLA to make catalytic changes to the lives of the children, from the funding of child immunization programmes to further education courses and the building of classrooms. Donations of any size are welcome. Any amount will make a difference to help us achieve our goals.

WHAT NEXT? You can leave money to family and friends and a gift to charity in the same Will. In doing so this can reduce the amount of inheritance tax that your families will have to pay in the future. Making a Will is a simple process and we recommend you speak with your solicitor to make one. SLA cannot recommend a solicitor for you but you can either contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau or find one at www.lawscot.org.uk | 0131 226 7411 (Scotland) or 020 7242 1222 (England and Wales)

WAYS TO LEAVE MONEY TO SLA – There are four main ways in which you can leave money to charity in your Will:

  • Residuary Legacy – The remainder after all other gifts and debts have been paid.
  • Pecuniary Legacy – A cash lump sum. Consider index-linking any cash gift to ensure that its relative value stays the same over the years.
  • Specific Legacy – A gift of a particular item of property i.e. jewellery, painting, furniture.
  • Gift in Memory – As a tribute and celebration of the life of a loved one you may wish to give a Gift in Memory. This will bring positive change to the lives of the children of SLA.
